    Default Your favourite names for make-up shades?

    There has been discussion about scent names but how about make-up shade names?

    Here are some of mine (some of them discontinued):

    Dior - Très, très Dior, Élégance, Arrogance, Vert Inouî/Incredible Green
    Chanel - Rouge Noir/Vamp, Rouge Orage
    Guerlain - Rouge Gipsy
    Helena Rubinstein - Temptress, Red Devil, Devil Red
    Lancôme - Sans Limite
    Biba - Pigalle

    What a fun topic, Tig! I'll have to check my makeup. Or course, NARS blush in Orgasm is one of my favorites. I'll see what else I have.

    I don't want to hijack your thread but this reminds me of a funny "make over" story about an eyeshadow name!

    My friend Corinne (female) and I were both student nurses in London. Both skint but on the way past a major pharmacy on The Strand, this woman offered her a make over. She thought it would be a great idea to cheer her up, keep in mind that Corinne is very pretty and knows exactly how to apply make up!.

    I stood near by and watched this woman slap make up on Corinne like I had never seen before! She looked like a doll! Bright red round circles on her cheeks, WAY OTT lip liner etc.. but to finish it off, she gets out the eyeshadow, a funny blue/turqoise colour. To look interested and to stop us laughing we asked the name of it, it was called MING! LOL! Well the make over or should I say UNDER was MINGing! LOL!

    Fun idea! Most of my makeup is from YSL or Dior, and they don't write the names of the shades on the product. If I get time, I might do a minor investigation...

    It's something that I am aware of when I buy it, I know.

    Oh, Lord!

    You guys need to see them shade names at my local nail parlour: No, I am not a Waitress is being one of them. :-) They are all OPI colors (78 shades altogether) and have pretty creative names: All Rose Leads to Rome, Berry Berry Broadway, Chick Flick Cherry, Cupp a Cawfee, Hey Vito, is my car red?, Not so Bora Bora-ing pink, You're A Pisa Work, You Cannoli Imagine, Root Bear Float.

    I like Nars's names: my favorite blush is Turkish Red, lipstick Trans Siberian, and eyeshadow Sea, S ex and Sun.

    And yes, the OPI names are priceless. I like How to Jamaica Millon, It's My Prague-ative, and Purpleopolis.

    Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! [smiley=cheesy.gif] I bet the name was inspired by those priceless Ming vases but you couldn't help adding an "e", could you? [smiley=rolleyes.gif]
